The Toronto and York Region Labour Council has developed a message for Ontario construction workers as part of its Workers’ Rights Campaign.
The campaign, which kicked off in March, is aimed at educating workers about the threat of the unfolding Conservative attack against unions.
The message notes that Conservative leaders Stephen Harper and Tim Hudak plan to create a low-wage economy by weakening unions.
For example, the Conservatives want to introduce a scheme that would encourage union members to become “free riders.”
The “free riders” would pay no dues but still get the advantage of union membership.
